[SH] General Discussion / Space Hulk White Dwarf Updates
« Last post by SpaceHulkMan on December 13, 2017, 12:10:22 PM »
Hey folks,

To set the scene, I'm basically 'out' of Games Workshop as a hobby and am not buying White Dwarf or popping into GW shops on a regular basis, and am therefore usually not totally up to date on Space Hulk updates.

However, this weekend I happened to pick up White Dwarf Dec. '17 issue on the off-chance that I noticed on the front cover it had written "Genestealer Cults in Space Hulk!". Sure enough, inside it had new rules published for using Genestealer Cults in third edition.

Now this brings me on to my main question: Does any resource exist anywhere online, or does anyone know of any and all official new rule sets/missions/updates that have been published in White Dwarf magazine or elsewhere since Third edition was published? If not, we should definitely make a comprehensive list right here, and so, to my knowledge, the following exist:

- White Dwarf: September 2014 (Issue 33) - New mission: 'Disable the Shields'
- Mission Files Expansion Campaign: Dark Angels - Bringer of Sorrow
- Mission Files Expansion Campaign: Space Wolves - Return to Kalidus
- Mission Files Expansion Campaign: Ultramarines - Duty and Honor
- White Dwarf: December 2017: Rule set for using Genestealer Cults in Space Hulk third edition

If anyone knows of any more just post below and I'll keep this list ^ updated ;D
Other Games / Re: Gaslands: A Review- Osprey Games

Yes, interesting topic indeed,

I spend lots of hours playing pc Carmageddon and its sequel Carpocalipsis.

Also remember Road Blaster! I had the poster of this game in the wall of my room when I was a child....

I remember when Car Wars was the "game on fire", but never had the boardgame.

Not the same topic, but I remember friday afternoon, after school with my friends playing Circus Maximus boardgame.... well is not the same but could be clasified as "Ancient Chariot Combat genre"  ::)

If you try Gaslands report here please

Its taken months but this log is finally finished.  The only thing I can think of that it may need is the explanation of how to build sub-sector maps.  But rules wise its finished, every faction has rules and is now fully featured in the campaign rules section.  I would very much appreciate feedback on this, particularly now that its all put together.
